Trouser Suits BIG for Autumn 2012 ….

The trouser suit or “pant suit” as our US patrons like to call it, always comes in and out of fashion.  That’s why it’s a good decision to buy a suit that may be expensive but is cut perfectly and suits our shape as it can be pulled out of the wardrobe season after season.

Kate Hudson shows us in Gucci how a “pant suit” should be done at the Venice Film Festival.  This looks effortlessly chic and sophisticated.  The colour choice is so flexible in terms of a shoe and top underneath.  I love this look!

However by the same token, we need to talk about Florence Welch who also attended the Festival in a suit taken straight off the Miu Miu runway.  Florence decided to ditch the jacket which I have to say was the wrong decision as this may have been the thread to at least try to pull this outfit together.  I love the clash of pattern which is bang on trend and I’m all for showing off good shoes but these trousers are way too short!  Florence looks like a a schoolgirl who’s mum can’t afford to buy a bigger size in their uniform.  People who know me, would know that I’m not Florence’s biggest fan in terms of fashion and in music……….

However, there are definitely elements of this look that I like but overall, my thoughts are that this outfit is a miss.
